Today we have a tutorial on making dry ice kief, one of my favorite ways to medicate foods (plus you can smoke it too), along with a new risotto recipe I came up with!
Kief, naturally extracted with dry ice, is my favorite way to medicate foods. It’s easy to use dry ice kief in marijuana cooking by simply stirring it into most any recipe. (Don’t forget to decarboxylate the kief first.)
You can buy kief in a dispensary but you can also make it yourself. Don’t get intimidated. Dry ice kief is easy for anyone to make with just a few simple tools. The video below will show you, in under 2 minutes, how to do it!
Today’s Marijuana Recipe: Mushroom Blue Cheese Risotto
I came up with this recipe after returning home from a road trip to Baja California’s Valle de Guadalupe wine country, where I had procured some excellent artisan blue cheese. Now blue cheese in risotto might not be traditional, but boy did it work, giving the dish a complex flavor and creamy richness. To quote an old episode of Seinfeld, this risotto is “orgasmic.” Especially with the addition of ganja, an aphrodisiac for many people!
If you have a Trader Joe’s store near where you live, they make a frozen mushroom medley that works great in this recipe, just use the whole bag. Otherwise, mix and match varieties of fresh mushrooms. If you can’t get anything exotic, the recipe would work regular cremini mushrooms.
The secret to making a great risotto is to cook it slowly, adding just a little liquid at a time, then stirring and cooking until it is nearly all absorbed by the rice before adding more.
